I guess when booking a last minute hostel in Tanzania you can expect the worst, however Ivory Anex was definitely less than expected. You may argue that for ~$15 you can't expect much, but I would say parts of the ceiling falling on your head whilst taking a shower, zero security and staff that were far from helpful, add up to make this place far from enjoyable. Checking in was a nightmare, there was no sign of the promised internet access, towels seemed scarce. Otherthanthat...
